Dear List,

Since the name of ConTeXt makes it almost impossible to search for that 
topic I'd like to ask you:

Is there an ConTeXt exporter (planned??). I am getting more and more fed 
up with all the package trouble...

Thanks in advance,

Markus

I guess it's just a question of modifying some variables, such as:

- org-latex-to-pdf-process
- org-export-latex-classes

Search for `xelatex' for examples of customization... and share your own
afterward...

Best regards,
  Seb

Can ConTeXt handle a LaTeX program? I thought it's a completely different
kettle of fish (at least, the samples that I've looked at look completely
different). If so, then it's unlikely that the latex exporter can produce
anything useful for it. It would need a separate exporter (but there isn't
one and afaik nobody is working on one).

No it can't, not that I'm aware of anyway. While 
both LaTeX and ConTeXt inherit from plain TeX, 
and therefore look somewhat similar cosmetically, 
they don't work the same. (e.g. ConTeXt does not 
use LaTeX packages, the .tex files differ in 
essentials and not just in details, etc.)

However with the latest experimental org-export library by Nicolas, it
should be possible to write an exporter without much trouble. :)

Open source is the future. It sets us free.

-- David I also think it would need a ne exporter. On the other hand it 
might prevent running in the too many packages trap of LaTeX. To be 
honest, I do not know how man people really use ConTeXt. Best Markus
